Research and Markets Logo

The APAC data center colocation market by investment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the period 2020-2026.



The demand for colocation has increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Increased access to internet-related services aided by nationwide lockdowns imposed by governments across APAC has driven service providers to increase their colocation spaces. Organizations in IT services, BFSI, hospitals, and education sectors have initiated remote working for employees.

Government agencies adopted cloud-based services where the confidential data of the state is stored securely. Moreover, the dependence of the education sector on the online teaching model has increased the demand for colocation services. The need for video-conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Webex, and Google Meet has experienced a steep rise.

The use of online shopping has increased significantly during the COVID-19 outbreak. Colocation service providers witnessed a strong uptake for data center spaces by existing customers owing to the growth of COVID-19-induced demand. The emergence of a new business environment in COVID-19 boosts cloud service providers, and video conferencing service providers have contributed to the colocation uptake. During the COVID-19 pandemic, cloud-service providers were the major contributors as they chose to host the data in colocation data centers instead of building their own data centers in the region.



APAC Data Center Colocation Market Segmentation



The electrical infrastructure market is likely to cross over USD 5 billion by 2026. Generators are the largest contributor to the market revenue due to the increased adoption of DRUPS systems. The adoption of UPS systems has become critical for operators and designers as they account for around 30% of facility failures. Most data centers deploy dual-power feed to overcome power outages and human errors in the deployment or maintenance stage.

The adoption of intelligent PDU solutions such as metered and monitored PDU dominates the market. The use of managed and switched PDUs is likely to grow during the forecast period. The APAC mechanical infrastructure market is growing at a CAGR of approx. 5% during 2020-2026. The need to monitor and identify cooling hotspots, temperature levels, and equipment failures has increased significantly due to the growth in power outages, thereby increasing the demand for mechanical infrastructure.



Lithium-ion UPS solutions are likely to witness high adoption from colocation providers. Modular data center operators expect to procure lithium-ion UPS systems with less than 500 kW power capacity. The adoption of single-rack prefabricated data center solutions will include single-phase lithium-ion systems with a power capacity of less than 10 kVA. The adoption of DRUPS systems will continue to grow among data colocation centers in several APAC markets.

Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and Hong Kong have witnessed high acceptance for DRUPS systems. However, some countries are witnessing low adoption of standalone diesel generators. With the increased construction of data centers across APAC, the market for transfer switches and switchgear expects to grow during the forecast period. However, switches vary significantly based on capacity supported, cost, mean time between failures (MTBF), switching time, and design.

INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY



China and Hong Kong expect to contribute maximum revenue to the market, with the India data center market likely to grow a promising CAGR of over 8% during 2020-2026. China & Hong Kong are the prominent markets for data center operations in APAC. The demand for data center market is growing on account of the boom in internet users, growth in the gaming sector, the popularity of the e-commerce industry, and investments in the digitalization of enterprises.

Tier-1 cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong are the major data center markets. In terms of investment, 39 colocation facilities contributed an investment of over USD 3.55 billion, which included projects that opened in 2020 and that are under construction and expected to be operational by June 2021. Shanghai is a preferred location for the colocation area under development, followed by Langfang and Beijing.
